Manager Comments:

Neil Harris - “We have had a relatively settled team last three games, maybe we have to think about a change to try and combat Stevenage’s strengths but we also have to look at what we do and where we have been getting better as well."


Steve Evans - "Sometimes when you put a new group together it takes a bit of time but I look at the quality of player like Mika Mandron, Stuart O’Keefe, Alex MacDonald, Ben Reeves, Max Ehmer, Elkan Baggott, I could keep going with the players they have got and I have nothing but respect for the boys that Neil has got there.

“Neil is a top manager, a Championship manager plying his trade in League 2.”
